Look at my carrot top. It has grown a bit more!



Today we are going to practise subtracting small numbers. This may seem easy but it is also easy to make careless mistakes. Remember subtract means  , How many do I have left when I take some away?

Skittle science

On Friday I put a list of things you will need this week.

One of the things was a packet of skittles.

Don't worry if you haven't got any , you can do this activity another day. It is good fun and interesting to watch. 

Watch the short clip below to find out what to do.

As you carry out the skittle task talk about what you observe and why you think this happens? Are there any scieintific words you can use to help you with your explaining?

I'd love to see some photos of your skittle work!

Tip - I have found it works better with warm water!
